Bath Travel Guide

Soon after you arrive in Bath, you will discover that it is a unique British city. Named after the hot springs that pour into its heart, Bath is a landscape of honey-coloured Georgian crescents. Royal Crescent is the finest example, but there are many more elegant streets lined with tall Georgian buildings for you to meander through.

Bath city centre is not just beautiful, but it is also extremely compact too. This makes it easy for pedestrians to navigate. In the city centre you will find The Jane Austen Centre, Bath Abbey, the beautiful Pulteney Bridge and the luxurious Thermae Bath Spa.

It was the Romans that put this Somerset city on the map, so find out exactly what they did for it at the fascinating Roman Baths. Follow your tour of the baths with afternoon tea at The Pump Room and you will be experiencing Bath exactly as the elite have done throughout the years.

The city of Bath is at the bottom of a hill-lined “bowl”, and around the edges of that bowl you will discover rolling British countryside, beckoning you to lace up your walking boots and get exploring. Even within the city you can spend hours roaming through green areas in its cleverly laid out parks, such as Prior Park and Royal Victoria Park.
